Profile:

ATL Guard: 6’3, 190 lbs; 2nd year, Virginia Tech 

NBA Role: versatile combo guard 

An NBA talent, Malcolm Delaney is finally getting a shot to contribute in the Association – won one of ATL’s backup PG spots in ’16-’17; player profile: Delaney is an offensive-minded combo guard w/ a solid inside-out perimeter game*; working to become a better spot up shooter, gets open looks from downtown when Coach Bud keeps either Paul Millsap or D-12 in w/ the subs; respectable play initiator – probes around (near the foul line), keeps his head up, vision like a hawk** – zips passes as soon as there’s an opening; experience playing at a high level overseas, could translate well down the stretch of tight contests; can Delaney’s shooting & playmaking reach a higher level of consistency? – ATL needs Delaney to take pressure off Dennis Schröder, could emerge as one of Coach Bud’s most reliable reserves

*basically, his float game is decent, can hit Js off screens from deep (or inside the arc)
